How's that New Year's diet working for you? If our own experience is any way to gauge, not particularly well. Instead of giving up, we're going to push things up a notch and go the homemade smoothie route. But we'll be investing in some special equipment. When it comes to extracting all the vitamin and nutrient-packed goodness from our fruits, nuts and seeds, the only thing that might top this NutriBullet Nutrient Extractor ($100) is a Vitamix. And we'll take the same kind of power for a fifth of the cost, thanks. After all, we don't want to be completely broke when we inevitably break down and go out for a cheeseburger.
